If that’s the question, it’s easy for me to go straight to the answer. Nine times out of ten it is not just stubbornness, but ringworm, gnawing, inability to give up to the fact that he no longer feels like it, that he is looking around and not in our direction.
Nine times out of ten it’s that stupid “you don’t know who I am” who questions us when faced with someone’s choice not to want us. But how dare they? But what does his brain tell him? Of course you miss it, but you have to consider the immediate loss of interest should it reappear crawling, a phenomenon that unfortunately occurs very often as soon as our insecurities are healed by a “I was wrong, let’s get back together” whatever.
So I ask the question to you: Do you miss the person you no longer have or how it made you feel to know that they wanted you? Because the knot is all there, and sometimes, there is no other way to put it, only you are missing.
